Hornby Island Diving is located on two acres of property at picturesque Ford Cove, Hornby Island in British Columbia, Canada. On the property is our guest lodge and tank fill station, along with our home, garden and workshops. Our dive boat is moored just steps from the lodge and all of our dive sites are located within 15 minutes of the harbour – great for diving, sightseeing & marine tours. Our tank fill station offers air, nitrox, argon and mixed gas fills.
